"The Ballad of the Lost Patrol" is a jaunty home recording by Michael Riley of Marys River Music. Enjoy the spirited lyrics sung by travelling musician Michael Riley as he leads you on a journey through the rocky roads of Summit, Oregon. The enchanting string arrangement is cheerfully accompanied by the Celtic Bouzuki, made and played by Tom Nunn. The song tells the story of an actual police chase through the coastal mountain range of western Oregon and the folly that resulted. This wonderfully performed piece of music brings back much of the feeling inspired in the 60's & 70's by Americans who really see what's out there and live to tell the tale. "You can't shoot the messenger now"
